On Making 50 Cents

So far this month I have made 50 cents selling my photos online. With so many blogs boasting of how they’ve retired to the Bahamas on their earnings, I’m finding my foray into the field pretty exciting.

Considering I’ve been uploading photos to some micro-stock sites for a few months now, and have earnt nothing, I see this as an amazing improvement. At this rate of improvement, won’t be long until I can afford a glass half-full of champagne (never half empty).

With these micro-stock sites you can apparently upload thousands of images per week. By the time I edit to my satisfaction, then title describe and tag, I’m lucky to do 3 photos a day. The fault must lie in my stars, not theirs.

What’s more, this is 50 c US – that’s 66c AUS. Even better. With coffee at my favourite cafe in Naples being only 1 Euro, it’s looking good. And, technically, it’s a double digit income. Sweet!

So I seem to have this whole earning a luxurious living as a writer / photographer / artist thing under control. As all those other success stories imply, easy! Shall keep you posted, hopefully from some exotic location as those fifty cent coins keep rolling in.

  1. Ah yes, I just made 22p from the sale of a mousemat with one of my lino prints on it – living the high life 😀

  2. Well done! I bet you double your income next week! I’ve thought of doing this, but it seems a lot of work for small rewards…..

      Just doing it for the fun. I’m ridiculously excited that someone, somewhere, has bought one of my photos!

  3. I’m laughing; I’m saying congratulations; and I’m also hoping that your foray into earning money from your photos online will pick up!
